Danish goalkeeper notices three Lions’ lack of success at European Championships
Denmark goalkeeper Caspar Schmeichel dug into England’s pre-Euro 2020 semi-finals with great difficulty and highlighted the lack of three lines in the recent tournament’s failure.
England are aiming to reach the final of their first European Championship by beating the Danes on Wednesday, while supporters of the three lions continue to popularize the “football homecoming” anthem at “Euro 96”.
Schmidt, however, asked: “Have you ever been home?” As for England, which has never experienced success in the European Championships.
What did you say
At a press conference on Tuesday, Schmeichel was asked what it would mean if Denmark were able to “prevent him from coming home”, to which he replied: “Has he ever been home? I don’t know. Do you?” Has he ever won it? ’66? Wasn’t it the World Cup?
“Honestly, I have no idea what it means to stop England. What will it be for Denmark. I have paid very little attention to the England team.
“This is the kind of work that will be repatriated for our country. When 5 million people return home, they will be happy to do something that will compete with the nations we are competing with.” There aren’t many emotions for that. “
Important history of England tournament
England’s only major tournament victory came when they beat West Germany 4-2 in the final to win the 1966 World Cup on home soil.
He has only reached the semi-finals of the European Championships once, reaching the Final Four in 1996 where he lost to Germany on penalties.
Denmark, meanwhile, are in the Euro semi-finals for the first time since 1992 when they were the surprise winners.
Caspar’s father Peter was in the goal 29 years ago when the Danes beat Germany 2-0 in the final in Sweden.
